Awaiting Hope's Reign by Selina Fenech...meanwhile Video



Hope's Reign (Memory's Wake #2) by Selina Fenech really is a book that is taking time to be released. Since read Memory's Wake book can't help to strain at reading the second book. Meanwhile if anyone has been waiting for Hope's Reign as well here is a video done by Selina Fenech herself about the origins of her book. 


Hope's Reign (Memory's Wake Trilogy #2)by 


It was easy making strong friendships while stuck together running for their lives, but will Memory be able to stay friends with Eloryn, Roen and Will when trying to fit into courtly life? She tries to be true to herself, both new and old, but she struggles as she is haunted by her old self, quite literally.

The release date is yet to be determined but spoke to Selena through e-mail and she mentioned it could be taking until toward the ends of 2013. She had other projects that set her back on releasing Hope's Reign earlier in 2013.

Blood +: Part Two (2009) Price Drop on Amazon.com!

Finally Amazon.com has regulated the price to an acceptable price. It used to be $80.99 or about.

Let's hope that Amazon.com keeps up with having reasonable prices on anime. The only downside is that Blood +: Part One is still $199.99 and $97.99. With these prices not regulated by Amazon.com yet sales may not increase or happen with prices like that for Part One.

Anime and Manga Fan discovery of All Otaku e-Magazine

If you're a fanatic anime and manga fan you're going to want to know about the latest in anime and manga. Magazines are a great way to go but as any anime and manga fan knows just trying to keep up with an anime and manga always lifestyle can be expensive! There is one magazine that doesn't cost you and has fascinating writing too.

While wandering the internet this past March came across a magazine online named All Otaku centered around South Africa. I for one didn't know anime even existed in South Africa! Well it does and the same conclusion I came to is the very reason for All Otaku. A need to spread the passion and pursue of anime/manga fandom there for more awareness. Even if you're American or live in another country this is a helpful but more importantly ground-breaking magazine. An e-mag like this could sure be a treat for anime/manga fans!

All Otaku is available to download in PDF or Text viewable on your computer or electronic device.

All Otaku (reviews of anime, anime director research, video game reviews, and beautiful cosplay images) has a brilliant template going here and hope they continue with their issues. Joannah Stewart the prime editor in particular has an intimate and welcoming voice that definitely knows how to express to mag readers what is out there in entertainment.
